8 Condolences for Anna “Ann” M. Noble Pratté

  • My heart aches, for mom Noble and family. I can remember the day I met her.Fourth Grade. We did a play together, Tom Swayer. We had a blast. Acapella Choir, and going to the states competition. Her smile and her friendship I could always count on. Our lives separated for a while but we kept in touch. She will be our SMILING angel in heaven. Miss you Anna

  • We will remember all our holiday gatherings and fun times we had together as a family in Newark, De
    As time went on and Ann starting failing in her health, situations changed and although we tried to
    continue our fun times we also realized they were not the same. Throughout Ann,s remaining life her attitude was uplifting and she was always smiling. I will especially remember her puckering up her lips
    throwing kisses at me. I will remember her compliments as she would try to speak words.
    We will surely miss Ann and never forget her loving spirit. When I would talk to her about Jesus, she always would say “the man upstairs” is looking after me.
    Praise God, now she is walking, running, singing, dancing. Mostly singing with her daddy.

    Loving memories,
    Dave and Shirley

  • She was a bright and cheerful person. The world will miss Ann as will her High School classmates.

  • Thru trials that would have challenged the strongest person, Anna May consistently showed a cheerful spirit. She was an inspiration to us. As her Savior, Jesus reserved a place in heaven for Anna May where she now resides for eternity in a state of perfect joy. There is no more suffering or sorrow for Anna May. That doesn’t make her loss easy to bear for her loved ones, but “we grieve not as those who have no hope”.

  • I love you deeply and intensely. I’m sorry you ever met me, Ann now you are with with God and finally free from pain, and any anguish that I caused you.
